There are many conflicting opinions about the price of diamonds in SA. My reccommendation is to look for a stone at home (from a reputable jeweler) and use that as a guideline when here. then SHOP AROUND!

AFAIK, diamond prices are set in Antwerp, and De Beers pretty much control the world market.

You need to know the comparative cut, colour, carat and clarity of the diamonds.

only prices of rough diamonds are set.

The price of cut diamonds can vary A LOT!
